When: August 16-20, 2021
Deadline for applications: July 15, 2021
VIM VIGOR’s SUMMER PROGRAM provides immersive research in contemporary dance-theater based education in the US. The program is anchored in VIM’s commitment to activating the whole of the performer, from the extremes of virtuosic dance to the fluid awareness of emotion and experience.
VIM’s program is focused on professional development with daily contemporary floorwork classes that improve dancers’ athleticism to move with efficiency into and out of the floor, as well as their artistry to work with context, emotional impulse and group dynamics. Afternoons are dedicated to workshops focused on improvisation, contact partnering and momentum based mechanics, dance theater exploration, acting, creative practice with the company, and roundtable community discussions. Though the program provides advanced training we welcome a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets, 18+.
This year feels particularly special as we navigate our collective effort to move back into the studio safely. As such we have subsidized our programming to reflect the grave financial situation all of us are collectively facing. Additionally we will offer two 50% scholarships for BIPOC movers interested in joining us.
We will invite a limited number of in-person participants to the first iteration of our satellite programming in ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN (everyone is welcome to apply for in-person). We have been invited into the gorgeous new studios at The University of Michigan and can’t wait to move with you here. See what happens when you take your summer training into nature WITH immersive training in a high end facility.
We also understand that this time requires our patience and our creativity – as such will also be offering online programming as well. We will have teachers dedicated to leading classes for dancers working from smaller spaces.
